This summer begins the 10th season of the Igor Legacy Camps. The focuses and goals of these camps are to promote the growth and development of youth-age cross-country skiers, provide exposure to the fundamental building blocks required for successful cross-country skiing, introduce summer dry-land ski training in a camp setting, and meet new Nordic friends.
Camp activities include introducing ski-specific dry-land training, roller skiing, and cross-training, such as agility and obstacle courses, ski walking and bounding, and outdoor games. Activities may vary slightly at each camp due to the terrain available at each venue.
Overall, attending a CXC Igor Legacy camp can help skiers develop their skills and confidence, make new connections in the skiing community, and prepare for a successful season of skiing.
* At least 1 year of rollerski experience required. The age groups are guidelines and have room for flexibility, depending on each participant's experience and fitness level.
Igor Badamshin was instrumental in developing senior and junior performance programs for CXC from 2008-to 2014 and helped many athletes and coaches gain experience and skills in cross-country skiing. His love for skiing, coaching, and youth development has left a legacy of success. Each camp intends to inspire and excite youth in Igor Badamshin's honor because his positive and playful approach to coaching has touched and inspired skiers of all ages.

Athlete safety is important to CXC. You must know about Safe Sport, Background Checks, and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Program. As a U.S. Ski and Snowboard partner, our National Governing Body, we must comply with the federal government's safe sport guidelines.
To participate in our camps as a coach (or volunteer parent coach), we need to have your background screened, Safe Sport trained, and familiar with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Program. U.S. Ski and Snowboard handle each of these steps through their membership process. You will have two options: a volunteer membership or a coach membership. Which membership is appropriate for you is your choice. To sign up for a membership and start your training, please follow this link: https://my.ussa.org/membership/start
The U.S. Ski and Snowboard training and background check will take some time, so please start on this as soon as practical. Once you have completed your training, please let us know, and we will confirm your certification with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard. We appreciate your understanding!
